Chantel McGregor+ support Born Healer

The Blues came calling first, but rock was always waiting around the corner. Well it would be, wouldn’t it? Coming from the deep south, it was inevitable, but living in the deep south of a major Yorkshire City, there’s a gritty hard edge to life!
A female guitar prodigy, Chantel was told by a major label that she had a "great voice, but girls don't play guitar like that!" Wisely ignoring their comments, she enrolled at the Leeds College of Music and became the first student in the college’s history, to achieve a 100% pass mark at BTEC, with 18 distinctions. Chantel then pursued further education and left with a First Class Honours degree in Popular Music and a coveted prize, the college’s musician of the year award.

Chantel released her highly anticipated new album, Lose Control, in October 2015 on her independent boutique label Tis Rock Music, this being the follow up to her critically acclaimed 2011 debut album, Like No Other.
After years of touring and festival appearances, Chantel returned with a vengeance with ten new songs that not only salutes contemporary rock, but shows her gradual transition from conventional Blues to a harder, bigger and bolder rock sound with progressive influences.
The single, Take The Power, from her latest album, was playlisted for 5 weeks on Planet Rock radio.

Chantel is currently writing for her third album, debuting some of the new tracks on her 2018 tour which is currently taking place throughout the UK and Europe.

BORN HEALER
Helen Turner, on vocals, from Glasgow, Scotland, has been rated by Classic Rock magazine as being "the real deal". She and Iain Black, on guitar, also from Scotland, met in London as songwriters, and recorded and toured with various bands, before joining up with drummer Andy Jones, from Manchester, in the Bare Bones Boogie Band.

With that band, they established themselves on the UK blues circuit, were nominated in the British Blues Awards, and released three albums. The last of these, Tattered & Torn, was voted one of the top albums of 2013 by Classic Rock: Blues magazine. Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin was seen at one of their gigs at the time, and the band were given the front cover of Blues in Britain magazine.

Marek Funkas, on bass, completed the Born Healer family in 2015. Originally from Poland, Marek has lived in London for 20 years and played most of his music in the UK. Together the band released their debut album, 'Til the Dawn, in 2016.

In January 2018, the band released a brand new YouTube video single, Forgot to Forget, and this is now also available to stream or download from Spotify, iTunes and more.
